Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

August 2014

Do you hear those calendar pages flipping by?  How in the world are they managing to go so quickly?  We can’t believe that it’s time to write the August newsletter.  Where in the world did July go? 

Sublime Merino LaceOur needles have been busy at the store, working up samples and plans for the upcoming year.  For starters, we’d like to introduce Sublime Merino Lace.  Eight luscious colours, and the yarn is very nice as well.  Sublime Merino Lace ShawlCarol knit up a little shawl from three balls of wool, with a bit left, and loves the shawl.  Such warmth, in a little fluffy shawl.  Perfect for those cool fall evenings.   There is a pattern book as well, with even more intricate ideas.

Our Knitting Wonders board continues to climb.  As of July 29, our total is 1321.  We have a month left – how high can we go? 

Carol’s grandson will be celebrating his first birthday with an Open House at the Prince Albert Community Hall on Sunday, August 17, from 2:00 until 4:00.  Come meet the apple of Carol’s eye as well as his parents, Jason and Coris.  Light refreshments will be served, and an RSVP will help insure that we don’t run short. 

Don’t forget The Knitters’ Fair to be held in Kitchener/Waterloo at The Aud on September 13.  We are not hiring a bus this year, but Barb and Carol are planning to attend and scope out the admissions issue in preparation for next year.  There may be an opportunity for some carpooling, so be sure to leave your information if you are interested.

Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing. 

Entrelac ScarfEntrelac Scarf – August – Interested in learning this very interesting technique?  We have an easy scarf project that will get you well on your way.  Using 400m of wool (Allegria or Painted Desert, or Monsoon, Kureyon or Chirimen), this little scarf would be a great start on your holiday knitting.  Class meets Tuesdays, from 1-3:00 pm or 7-9:00 pm beginning August 5 and continuing through the month of August.  Cost is $20 plus materials.

Crochet Baby/Adult Hat -- September – For that special someone in your life (or yourself!), we have a cute little hat planned.  Class will meet on Thursday mornings, beginning September 4, from 10-12:00, at a cost of $20 plus materials.

Japanese Upside Down Knitted Poncho – September – Remember when Barb’s husband brought home a pattern book from Japan?  Barb is decoding the directions for an adorable lace poncho – but it’s not your 1960’s poncho.  Brought into the modern era and knit in DK weight yarn, this little beauty will be an excellent layering piece for three seasons of the year!  Cost is $20, plus materials. 

Great American Aran Afghan – This project will generally be meeting on the third Sunday of each month, providing there are no holidays on the specified weekend.   This month, the designated Sunday is July 20, at 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm.

Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale, and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian Cardigan on page 104.  Carol and Barb are still working on their cardigans, and welcome anyone else who wants to play along.  It’s never too late for entrelac!

Building Blocks – Michelle Hunter has created an afghan comprised of knitted squares, each designed to build your skills with needles, stitching, and assembly.  We are nearing the end of this class session – our final meeting is Sunday, August 24, wherein we will discuss assembling, blocking, and partying!  Class is currently filled – leave your name if you are interested and we will schedule a second series of classes. 

Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again!  An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons.  We are planning this class to begin in January, after the frenetic activity of the holidays, and to be meeting on a weekday morning.  Please let us know if you are interested!

Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
